Arsenal have been handed a triple injury boost ahead of their FA Cup clash against Burnley this weekend, according to reports.

Francis Coquelin is in contention to feature during the fourth-round clash at Emirates Stadium after his spell on the sidelines with a knee injury, reports the Daily Mail.

Coquelin has not featured for the Gunners since November but returned to first-team training with his team-mates at London Colney in recent days.

However, the French holding midfielder could be in line to feature when holders Arsenal host Burnley.

The same newspaper report also says that striker Danny Welbeck is due to return to first-team training with the north London side this week.

Welbeck has been out since last year after requiring knee surgery at the start of the season, but the former Manchester United striker is now closing in on a comeback.

Tomas Rosicky is also due to be available for selection once again following his lengthy lay-off. He made his return to action for Arsenal’s Under-21 side last Friday.
